Winter Getaway Day 8

A short-ish drive today from Denmark to Albany, with just a couple of stops on the way.

We did a little detour right at the start to do a drive-by Marilynn’s dad’s house in Denmark.

Then we were off to see the privately-owned museum “Recollections of War” near Youngs Siding. It is an amazing, eclectic collection of war memorabilia that is ever-growing (courtesy of donations and eBay!).

The next stop was over a bit of corrugated gravel to the Shelley Beach Lookout to take-in the (fresh) views of the Great Southern Ocean.

After that, it was off to Albany for an early afternoon and another free day tomorrow.
